File Striping (deprecated)

Note: This function is deprecated, and provided for backward compatibility only. We recommend that you use IDXFORMAT"8" instead.

The file striping option enables you to create logical files that are up to 512 Gigabytes in size. These logical files can comprise up to 256 physical files.

As these large logical files comprise multiple physical files, you cannot enable file striping on a global basis as this could lead to the operating system running out of file handles. You need to decide, therefore, the files on which you are going to use striping.
